Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

Kathleen - sorry you are having to worry about health bill along with everything else. Thoughts, hugs and prayers are being sent. God bless!!

Kathleen, I'm so sorry that you have financial worries on top of dealing with losing Rocky. Life is so unfair. 

Comment by Michael Thompson 22 hours ago

I have always appreciated Britain's National Health Service funded via direct taxation and founded via a Labour Government in 1945-48, /Democratic Government in the USA.  No bills, no financial worries whatsoever.

Kathleen...I can relate to your post .Bills still must be paid after we lose our spouse... If they don't get paid, everything gets repossed or shut off. Can you not sign up on Social Security for help. Most every one I know who have been left the bills and food, have been signed up and it is not all that much, but it helps .  Just a thought.  Will send prayers for you .

Kathleen, I know precisely how you feel.  My wife was my world, my soul mate, she made everything special, she had class.  When she passed, she took two thirds of me with her.

I live in the US too. I don't know what I'm going to do when the bills all start coming in. We are not wealthy or even comfortable...we are not even making it really...it's pathetic. I will have to file bankruptcy. I'm an office assistant. Those co-pays are going to be a lot I know. Plus I have my own health issues.

I feel like just getting a gun and ending myself when I lose him

Comment by Michael Thompson yesterday

Shirley, likewise to you, too.  Trouble is everyday now, just melts into another.

Comment by Shirley yesterday

Michael......Wishing you a great day.  and Prayers for you too.

Hi Shirley, yes I know about the American private health system.  This is why the UK's NHS is highly valued.

"Thank-you, Richard. I'm just so mad at myself for caving in. I really thought I would never drink again. Only something like this could have made me. I hope I can stop also. "

I can't do this anymore.

It's been a little over two months since my boyfriend killed himself. Since it happened everything has gone to hell. I've had to withdraw from school, I lost my job, and worst of all, I've lost my spirituality. I am an alcoholic and was doing really well; I hadn't drank in a year and half and was going to meetings, but I've relapsed. I really want to get back on the wagon because drinking is only making things worse.The reason this is so hard, aside from the fact that the love of my life is…See More
